Original Song Title:

Original Performer:

Screamin' Jay Hawkins

Parody Song Title:

"For Whom Tolls Bell? Thee. . .You"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

For whom tolls bell? Thee. . .you.
The sound is thine.

'cause no man (and no woman, too)
Is an island
Like remote Iceland,
A small speck of land that
Has got frozen ground--
Bare bedrock that's stranded
In Atlantic, no others around.

Poet didn't tell with "you"
If friend of thine.
"Thee"'s fine.

Back then, "you"
Had forms two:
Formal "you."
Like Deutsch "du," that was "thou."
In cases where
'twas objective: "thee."
"Thine ox," "thy cow.

Thou hear'st me?

Participle of "do,"
'twas "donne." Cows: kine.

[fade on sound of bells tolling]

Thanks, Alvin, for this and the rest. Not too long before I give it a rest.
